The Fertile Crescent: Women Artists from the Middle East
In Princeton and New Brunswick, art by women from the Middle East is opening eyes and challenging stereotypes. Susan Wallner talks with Iranian Parastou Forouhar and Nigerian Fatimah Tuggar, two of the many artists involved. Both women grew up in political families and openly address political and social themes in their work. Exhibitions and events that are part of The Fertile Crescent: Gender, Art, and Society continue through January 2013.
